Fair use is legal doctrine that allows uses of copyrighted works that would otherwise be proscribed. Public domain works, by definition, are not copyrighted, so no fair use defense is necessary to make use of them.

Educational uses are in some circumstances recognized as "fair" for copyrighted material. News reporting, criticism, parody and review are other recognized fair uses, limited in scope though they may be.

Thanks, akb. That basically outlines what I wanted to know. I guess there isn't really an "overlap" between PD and fair use.
